Whether she’s spotted on the streets in DKNY campaigns set in her home of New York City, or spinning at events in Paris, Vashtie is no doubt an international tastemaker. But now she’s taking her influence underwater for her latest collaboration with Nickelodeon and FLuD.

Just in time for the upcoming Spongebob Squarepants movie, the designer/director/DJ helped design a limited-edition crossbody bag inspired by everyone’s favorite sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea.

“SpongeBob speaks to my creative inner-child and fashion represents my position as a woman of the world. Despite the fact that society says you can’t be both, this bag represents me and countless others as both independent women and dreamy youth,” says “Downtown’s Sweetheart.”

Made from vegan leather, the $90 bright yellow bag is crafted with a scalloped flap and attached to a 24″ gold linked chain. Only 100 pieces are available exclusively at exclusively at,, and Before you cop it, get a better glimpse below.
